Here’s everything Democrats can do to fight Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Here’s everything Democrats can do to fight Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

“Pull out all the stops”

It’s a rough week to be a Democrat. In several decisions the Supreme Court upheld Constitutional protections again. Such a drag, those guys. It’s like they don’t even care about anyone’s feelings!

And the icing on the cake? Justice Kennedy announced his retirement. So TrumpHitler gets a second SCOTUS pick. May as well fold it up and put on a cape because WE ARE LIVING IN THE HANDMAID’S TALE.

Democrats must DO something!

So far the plan looks something like:

1) Pull out all the stops
2) …
3) On Earth 2, Magically Defeat Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Thankfully, the Daily Show with Trevor Noah is here to help out. He’s compiled a list of everything Democrats can do to fight Trump’s Supreme Court nominee:

That list includes:

  1. Do everything they can
  2. Pull out all the stops
  3. Dig in hard
  4. Stand together
  5. Fight this
  6. Win this
  7. Fight as if the Constitution is at stake

Now everyone can breathe a little easier.

Yes, I am still a broken record….

I held my nose and voted for Trump because:

– Judges
– Not Hillary
– everything else is gravy

So far, still paying off!

    clintack in reply to rabid wombat. | June 28, 2018 at 7:48 pm

    And the gravy’s coming along nicely on the stovetop too.

    Paul In Sweden in reply to rabid wombat. | June 28, 2018 at 11:47 pm

    Yup, similarly with myself. It was going to be Hillary or Trump and one or the other was going to potentially be able to appoint up to four SCOTUS justices. I did not understand NeverTrumpers. The stakes were too high. Principles I can understand but cutting off your nose to spite your face is another story.

    Trump and a *promise” to make the vacant SCOTUS appointment from a really good list of conservative candidates or Hillary’s guarantee of a possible four more Ginsburgs. Well my choice was clear.

    This is what I was posting to Johnson supporters prior to the election. https://is.gd/CNxIrv

That looks like a full comprehensive list.

We know what they’re going to do.

Harassment. They’ve been practicising.

They’ll make day-to-day life unbearable at restaurants, theaters, concerts, conventions, museums, libraries, airports, parties. They’ll annoy his neighbors, try to hack his phone, hack into any e-mail account he’s ever used. They’ll threaten his kids, terrify his wife, kill his dog. And other depravities, outrages, and perversions I haven’t thought of, because I’m not a depraved pervert.

The goal? Get him to withdraw his nomination just to make the constant agony stop. Then when the Preident nominates another, the routine will start again.

It will take a seriously tough old boot to get through this gauntlet. His merits as a judicial conservative won’t be the most important factor in this appointment. How will the nominee react to finding a horse’s head in his bed? That will decide who’s the next Associate Justice.

    clintack in reply to tom_swift. | June 28, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    Don’t forget the parade of Anita Hill wannabees.

      tom_swift in reply to clintack. | June 28, 2018 at 8:17 pm

      That they were going to do as a matter of routine.

      The press will be positively giddy over the prospect of bombarding us with unsourced stories about the candidate’s juvenile arrest record for spitting on the sidewalk, about his imaginary sympathies toward the Klan, the strange color of the car he drove as a college student, his collection of National Socialist memorabilia (he must have one, right?), his childhood comic book collection (and its prize item, the notorious Hansi, the Girl Who Loved the Swastika), the thinly-veiled racism of the name of his fishing boat, and such childishness. And we can expect the standard parade of wannabe bimbos accusing him of … something-or-other, it hardly matters what.

      But this will not be part of the personal harassment campaign. The purpose of the published rubbish will be to provide cover for Senatorial weak sisters like Murkowski, Flake, Snowe, and the usual suspects, allowing them to announce with great fanfare that they just can’t “in good conscience” vote for confirmation for fear of having to collapse onto their swooning couches.

      All business as usual. The new thing, the “pulling out the stops” stuff, will be the campaign of physical harassment. And they’re announcing that no childishness will be too puerile, no outrage beyond the pale, no disgusting display too outré.

      They’re counting on judicial nominees being too sedate to be able to endure this. And they may be right. Trump is going to have to come up with an Indiana Jones Roy Chapman Andrews type to pull this off.

        sestamibi in reply to tom_swift. | June 28, 2018 at 11:45 pm

        Um, Tom, while your sentiments are admirable, you need to catch up on current events. Olympia Snowe has been gone from the Senate for six years now. She retired in 2012.

      Petrushka in reply to clintack. | June 28, 2018 at 9:50 pm

      Could be a woman.

        DaveGinOly in reply to Petrushka. | June 28, 2018 at 10:50 pm

        A handicapped black lesbian who identifies as Native American. Such a person would be practically unassailable.

        tom_swift in reply to Petrushka. | June 28, 2018 at 11:25 pm

        It’s not by blind chance that the leftoids have been harassing Trump admin women of late, rather than men. My guess is that they expect the women to cave much sooner. Women are not overly fond of being on the receiving end of abuse; on the other hand, some men will consider it a challenge. And that’s why I expect the primary targets to be the nominee’s children and wife, hoping that the pressure on them will inspire him to cave. The “War on Women” is a tried-and-true D’rat tactic, and the war need not be waged solely on the nominee himself.

        As successful judicial nominees, I’m afraid that in this political climate, women will be non-starters.

        An Asian woman with attitude would be an intriguing choice.

        Is Elaine Chao available?

The hard left will have no one to blame but themselves when the next nominee will be confirmed to SCOTUS.

They will be protesting at his or her house and following the nominee around and yelling at them.

The behavior of the left will do more to unify Senate Republicans then anything the president can do.

Nice list, but who ever that guy is left off “Type really mean things on the internet.”

    And refuse to show up, so that the senate lacks a quorum.

      Milhouse in reply to Close The Fed. | June 29, 2018 at 1:17 am

      If all the Rs show up (except McCain), plus at least one D to make the quorum call, that’s a quorum right there. If no Ds show up then there won’t be a quorum call, so the lack of one won’t matter.

        Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | June 29, 2018 at 7:22 pm

        The GOP should just ambush the Dems. Don’t tell them when there will be a floor vote on the nominee. And have the Sergeant at Arms lock to doors so they can’t get out.

        There’s your quorum.

          Milhouse in reply to Arminius. | July 1, 2018 at 7:24 am

          As I just pointed out, this is completely unnecessary. The Ds are not needed for a quorum. Even with McCain out only one D is needed, and they have to leave one to make the quorum call; if they all leave nobody will make the call and it won’t matter how few there are.

    Also missing is “hyperventilate” and “scream at the sky.” Those two always produce results!

      Tom Servo in reply to DaveGinOly. | June 29, 2018 at 1:07 am

      if you were watching the stories today, you saw that another one from the left was “Scream from your Vagina!”

      I wish I was making that up – but I’m not. Seriously, the leftists were promising to do that.

When a large portion of your backers get their information from the so called late night comedians, you’re in trouble.

If it makes a skit, and is funny, it must be true. Here, hit this and pass the cheetos!

    DaveGinOly in reply to Romey. | June 28, 2018 at 10:55 pm

    That’s not even funny.

    Before the election, I got into it (in a community room of my apt. complex) with a liberal woman. She finally said something so outrageous I asked her, “Where to you get your news?”

    She replied, “Late night television.” She was serious.

    “You get your news from comedians?” I asked.

    Everyone else in the room laughed at her.

    I noticed that praying to Gaia wasn’t one of the options. LOL

    Maybe they could enlist an illegal shaman or one of the Haitian illegals to invoke some of the voduo stuff.

No no no you’ve got the meme wrong, come on Legal Insurrection!

It’s supposed to be:

Step 1: Fight Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee
Step 2: ????
Step 3: PROFIT!!

healthguyfsu | June 28, 2018 at 8:13 pm

The downside of this joke is that you had to read and quote Trevor Noah to publish it.

“Fight as if the Constitution is at stake”

Dude! That’s like a hundred years old! *snort* First time they’ve worried about that document

inspectorudy | June 28, 2018 at 8:42 pm

Bottom line, Elections have consequences. Thanks to the monster Harry Reid we now have the magic combination of winning the election and no filibuster on judges!

Close The Fed | June 28, 2018 at 8:56 pm

Anyone know anything about Ginsberg’s health? I know she sleeps a lot…

    tarheelkate in reply to Close The Fed. | June 29, 2018 at 8:34 pm

    Ginsburg is 85. That may or may not mean much. And Sotomayor recently had emergency treatment related to her Type 1 diabetes. She’s had it since childhood, so it may not limit her term in office.

Everything the Dems will do to fight Trump’s SC nominee:

Lie, cheat, steal, scream, cry, bluff, bully, howl, screech, assault, throw, bribe, etc…

Golly.
Well leave me out of all of that.

They already have ten woman and four men who will submit affidavits to the New York Times that “the nominee (whoever it might be) sexually harassed, molested, raped me, after feeding me date rape drugs.” Just fill in the name of the nominee.

Why would anyone want to subject him/her-self to that kind of grief? False accusations were enough to drive Herman Caine from the race for Pres.

And if that doesn’t work, I fear physical attacks!

They’re fighting to save the “constitution”, meaning their air castle of emanations and penumbras. The actual Constitution is anathema to them.

The leftist sacrament of abortion is at stake! All means of resistance are in play.

The nevertrumpers didn’t care because if you notice there wasn’t anything hillary would probably do that would actually affect them.

They were/are insulated from most of government actions because of their position, job, finances, friends, insider knowledge, etc.

They were not and never were normals. They either were/are or were being considered for positions with the elite.

This is why most major media stars also weren’t really worried. Except that Trump won that took a lot of them out of their fantasies of joining hillary and the long march to despotism.

well we’ll never know and we must keep them where they are now; far from any communications outlet or access where they can influence anything or any body.

Trump has done us an immense favor by forcing them to reveal their true colors. We must not let them hide again.

Very insightful post, Jakee308!

BrokeGopher | June 29, 2018 at 2:30 am

There is one other thing they could do, unthinkable as it is. If 1 or more GOP senators are unable to vote…well, you fill in the rest. Given that the other side’s world is ending, do not put it past them. I hope we haven’t gotten to that point, but it’s not an impossibility.

    scooterjay in reply to BrokeGopher. | June 29, 2018 at 7:20 am

    I fully expect that to happen……we’ve seen it with the push for gun control. “Pull out all the stops”.

If they manage to stop a qualified nominee from being confirmed, it will be the lowlife, leftist Republicans who do it. But, the Democrats will provide them with a large array of inane excuses for doing it.

This isn’t such a big win for Trump. It’s an opportunity to appoint a conservative, but Kennedy was fairly good anyway, except I think on affirmative action which he seemed to have a guilt complex about. He should be replaced by someone slightly to the right of Gorsuch.

If Breyer, Ginsburg or Sotomayor finally give up and retire, then I could see the Dem anguish. But here they aren’t even losing a vote.

Tactics that are common across all strategies:
a. Scream “racist!”
b. Wear funky hats and colored ribbons
c. March a lot (since you don’t seem to have a real job)
d. Scream “racist!”
e. Launch Social media storms
f. Picket small businesses
g. Scream “racist!”
h. Scream “Nazi!”
i. Scream at the sky
j. Call in Antifa
k. …

(Wow – that was too easy. Any one of us could greatly expand that list.)

They find a federal judge in Hawaii or Seattle who issues an injunction to order Trump not to nominate anyone until the Mueller investigation is complete. 9th circuit backs it, and SCOTUS is divided 4-4, so it sticks.

    Milhouse in reply to BrokeGopher. | June 29, 2018 at 11:03 am

    No, it doesn’t. The president ignores the purported injunction since it’s blatantly ultra vires, and makes that one stupid judge a whipping boy for the entire judiciary. Orders US Attorneys to refuse to appear before that judge on any matter. Demands that the House impeach the judge. Etc. And wins, because the judge is so obviously in the wrong that nobody can defend him/her/it.

      BrokeGopher in reply to Milhouse. | June 30, 2018 at 2:40 am

      That’s what should have happened with the injunction on the travel ban. But it didn’t. I have no reason to expect any different next time.

      SDN in reply to Milhouse. | June 30, 2018 at 7:11 am

      The House may impeach, since that only takes a simple majority. If you think there aren’t 34 Democrat Senators who would keep the judge even if he/she BBQd a baby in his courtroom, you’re on crack. Judge ain’t leaving.

        Milhouse in reply to SDN. | July 1, 2018 at 7:26 am

        Of course the judge would not be convicted. Did you think I didn’t know that? But how is it relevant?

“Fight as if the Constitution is at stake”

Is the Lefttard refering to the Communist constitution or the 2020 consitution
